Acceptable risk? Apparently not, according to the folks who make risk assessment their business.

Just came across this clause while reading my renter’s insurance documentation*:

"Discharge of a nuclear weapon will be deemed a warlike act even if accidental."

Gee, even my insurance company thinks the dang things are too risky to have around at all. Maybe we could save social security AND let the fat cats keep their tax cuts if we stopped wasting all this money on nukes it’s dangerous just to build? I mean, come on; it’s like investing in expensive venomous snakes to defend your home. Sooner or later someone’s gonna get bit.

*Yes, I actually read the policy details. Give me a frickin’ medal or at least a bunch of dark chocolate.
